druid-ish shinies for 4.0.3a

By admin in : Druidism, Euphemism // Nov 24 2010

I already moaned and groaned about the patch changes awaiting resto druids (you can read it here), but I almost forgot to list all the exciting new druid-ish features this patch has to offer! I woke up with a buzz rollin’ round in my brain, and I haven’t been drinking but it feels pretty much just the same. Bring on the patch goodies!!!

1. Talent trees are reset

A couple of talents in the resto tree have been restructured, freeing up a couple of talent points for us to fool around with. Talent trees won’t likely to be subject of change untill Cata release, as the official beta testing ended a couple of days ago.

Talents restructured :

  • Revitalize is now a 2-point talent, down from 3
  • Malfurion’s Gift no longer has Fury of Stormrage as a prerequisite
  • Swift Rejuvenation is now a 1-point talent, down from 2

Talents revamped and balanced :

  • Revitalize provides a 20% chance to return 1/2% of the druid’s total mana on periodic heals from Lifebloom or Rejuvenation. This effect cannot occur more than once every 12 seconds.
  • Efflorescence now has a diminished effect when healing more than 6 players at once.
  • Empowered Touch now procs from Healing Touch as well as Nourish.
  • Natural Shapeshifter now also increases Tree of Life duration by 5/10 seconds.

If you wonder what talent spec I will be playing at 80 until Cataclysm:
there you go ^.^
I didn’t take Empowered Touch just yet but I will at 85 and I have not bothered yet with Nature’s Cure. We have all been fine without druids curing magic, I’m sure we will remain happy with that for the next couple of weeks. What works for me, does not necessarily work for you or in your healing crew, so don’t pin yourself on my spec but explore the resto tree instead! It’s much more fun to do so, anyway.

2. New Race / Class Combinations
  • Troll druid available on patch day (also includes a new Troll starting area, for all the people who fancy rerolling today!)
  • Worgens druid is NOT unlocked with this patch, and will only be available on December 7th for people who bought the expansion.
3. Log-in screen

A wicked new log in screen!

4. To remember!
  • Portals in Dalaran/Shattrath Removed and replaced by class trainers
  • The Shattering changes Azeroth’s existing zones
  • New cata intro cinematic
  • New music
  • City Quartermasters, with rep tabards
  • New tamable hunter pets (Monkey, fox, dog, and beetle, as well as new skins for existing pet classes.)
